Middlesbrough have always been one team which I feared playing as more often than not we are rubbish against them so I can hardly say that I am full of confidence ahead of this one, particularly with how we are performing at the moment.

We've had some horrible cup trips up there. Over zeaolus policing never helped either.

Hope we have got rid of our 'draw' sequence by then. Don't look forward to this tie one bit.

It's almost like playing another PL team as they are flying in the championship at the moment. It will indeed be a very tricky tie.
